So, I would like to issue a challenge to all of you crocheters and even non-crocheters to dig in those drawers, root through those closets, reach under those beds, rummage in the corners, and clean off those desks . . . . . . . and confess to us, once and for all, how many WORKS-IN-PROGRESS you currently have, stashed away, waiting not-so-patiently to be worked on again. If you crochet, you know what I'm talking about. If you don't crochet, I welcome you to come clean about any other projects you've started in good faith, only to be discarded in disgust, or lack of time, or out of just plain boredom!
I'm truly hoping I'm not the only one out here in Blogland who has a hard time staying focused on one project. I mean, I'm sure it's acceptable to have a "few" projects going on at the same time. But, I'm talking about those projects that you've set aside, intending to finish on the next rainy day, only the spirit has never moved you to dig those WIPs back out again.
C'mon, be honest. Come clean. Step forward and admit your guilt. Confess your sins. We all want to know, and SEE! Yes, I challenge you to photograph this journey, so that we can all share in our shame together. I've been trying to make up some kind of contest to go along with this, but so far, haven't come up with anything bright and original. My goal, which I guess I haven't really made clear, is for us to bring all these old and forgotten projects out of hiding and FINISH them! That's right, I mean C-O-M-P-L-E-T-E them!
Pammy Sue, are you guilty? Can you set aside those projects on your "To Do" list and join our liberation? Beverooni, set aside those sweaters for a day or two and reveal to us anything you've neglected. Beansie, you may just be the most ambitious person in my little blogging world. But, surely you have a project or two that needs some TLC. Do I need to continue going down my Blog list and naming names? You know who you are. Stand up and be counted!
Seriously, guys, this could be fun. I'm the world's worst about procrastinating. My intentions are good and my goals are ambitious. But, the end result is not as satisfying to me as I'd like. So, I will lead this revolution. I resolve to have a list of my unfinished works-in-progress on my blog, with pictures, by this coming Saturday. Trust me, I am putting a lot of pressure on myself, but once it's spoken, it has to be done.
I hope you will join me and share in this little adventure. Perhaps some of you might have some ideas about how we could turn this into a game or a challenge or a swap of some sort. I'm anxious to hear your comments.
And, yes, Hunter, that means I will have to drag out that Spongebob I started almost a year ago and finish it for you. ARRGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!
